    A lot of clothes dryers/tumblers have cheap threaded blower wheels that screw onto a motor shaft. Often, the wheel’s threads are stripped from constant thermal expansion. When hot enough (it’s delayed), there’ll be a loud noise of metal spinning inside metal. The motor could be dying too (running hotter than normal) since it has the stronger threads.

    One temporary fix involves wrapping copper wire around the motor’s threads for friction.. at least while trying to think of a more “permanent solution” that does not involve buying/hoarding perfectly shaped blower wheels indefinitely.

    Maybe I’m dreaming.. but a stealthy trend of distorted words is afoot. Is that an defense/poisoning mechanism, innocuous misspellings/truncations or artifacts in generated content?

    So, I just realized that infinite scrolling is a two birds, one stone kinda thing. Basically; your servers do almost nothing, while the clients toil your complexity (and their time) on the server’s behalf.

    It’s a bad all–you–can–eat buffet in computer algorithmic form. The rewards? Architectural flexibility + implicit user retention. I recently saw someone scrolling a YouTube channel all the way to the end just to find the first video. That’s the server’s job.. and a lot of wasted user time.
